Great stop for forgotten throwbacks, new favorites, international treats. Even if you don’t want to buy anything, stop in and check out the decor and snarky signs.

Great stuff, didn’t have a few delicacies I was looking for (lemon sherbets, bonbons etc) but a good selection anyway. Friendly staff and fun music. Amazing sweets!

Love this place. They have such a great selection of candy, some of them old-fashioned. Everyone working here is always helpful. I stop every time I’m in Halifax. And, of course, I buy some candy every time.

This is a favourite candy store of my children. They typically buy a large bag of gummies that tends to last for 3-4 days, with favourites being chicken feet, peachy penguins and peach rings. It is more expensive than a Bulk Barn, but the experience...More
